National Society of Leadership and Success

Welcome to The National Society of Leaders and Success - Sigma Alpha Pi at York College.


The National Society of Leadership and Success was founded by Gary Tuerack. Gary was an extremely slow reader as a child and because of that, he had to work ten times harder in school. In order to overcome those obstacles, Gary learned several techniques that would help him read faster, focus better and remember things.  It all paid off because he is an Ivy League graduate of Cornell University. Gary spent his years after colleges trying to help college students accomplish the goals that they thought were impossible. Beginning with just over 100 members, the Society has grown into 80,000 students around the world. 

The York College Chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success – Sigma Alpha Pi was charted in 2007. The organization now has over 400 members and continues to gain new members every year. Since it was founded the organization has been involved with many projects and events including Treats for Vets, NSLS Giving Gifts, bake sales and networking mixers. The chapter has also participated in events such as the Aids Walk and Breast Cancer Walk. The organization strives to help others and their communities hoping to create a long-lasting helpful impact.
